  3. I have a villager puffin stove with back boiler, however I believe the back boiler has a crack in it, last Christmas when I was emptying the ashes they were wet and I could see water leaking at the back inside the fire, my question is can I replace just the back boiler or do I need to buy a new stove?

  11. Engine is running fine, I've had the filters changed, and a new belt fitted, however it's not been fully serviced for well over a year now and I'm planning trip beyond Foxton locks and back to my home moorings in Kegworth this week coming, however I know this might be a long shot but does anyone have any ideas where my gearbox oil is located? I haven't got the foggiest, I know how to check oil, water and diesel, grease the stern tube etc but have no idea where it's located.... Thanks in advance

  14. I'm so sorry to hear this sad news, as a 'newbie' liveaboard like a total idiot I thought it would be ok too stash a few bits of wood against my stove, went out for the evening came back, boat was boiling.....soon dropped off sleep on the sofa - I awoke to the smoke alarm going off in the rear of the boat. My boat was full of smoke I couldn't hardly see anything! I flung the bow doors open and then realised the wood I had stashed against my stove was smouldering, I was lucky 'very lucky' the fact that my stove is in the bow yet my smoke alarm is in the stern above the engine bay, yet it still woke me in time dont bare thinking about - I have a 'fireangel' smoke alarm back there and there was certainly an angel looking over me that night - I also have a CO alarm in the kitchen area ( which didn't go off) but is working perfect - It took me 45 mins too clear all the smoke - and scared me to death almost literally I no longer have anything around my stove now and even put my 'Fireguard' around it, like Rob says stay safe out there
  15. Her voice sent me to sleep too, but if a new and livaboard boater TDH can learn something from this film then i've made my case.......
